We knew that 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev smoked pot — he seemed to admit as much on his much-parsed Twitter account. But according to a new report, the Boston Marathon suspect was also a go-to source for marijuana on campus. Because, you know, he was a kid in college.
The younger Tsarnaev brother never went broke while attending the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth — and that could be attributed to his side business dealing drugs, The Boston Globe reported Wednesday morning. "Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was a scholarship student who earned spending money by selling marijuana, say three people who bought drugs from the 19-year-old," the Globe's Todd Wallack and Beth Healy write.
Before you go out screaming about accused terrorists and their connection to Big Weed, you should know Dzhokhar wasn't high up on the drug food chain. "Several fellow students reported he earned at least some cash selling marijuana — at least the portion he didn't smoke himself," the Globe reports. From the sound of it, Dzhokhar was dealing to get a better price for his own supply — a common occurrence for heavy smokers in college dorms. There's a readily available market, and they save money, something Dzhokhar apparently was concerned about. He appears to have been earning money on the low as a pot connect.
